She wants me to bring her over bread and milk
The thing is she lives across the street from a convenience store. It is literally 150 feet away from her front door.
Why should we have to drive across town to bring her this stuff when she can go get it and be back in 10 min tops?!
We takes her grocery shopping. I tell her everytime,make sure you have enough stuff,but noooooo....
I told her,if you need a few things,most likely there's more stuff you need. We'll come get you and you can get your stuff.
No,she wants me to just get it and bring it to her
It's the epitome of laziness and it's royally pissing me off
The rest of my family has thrown up their hands in disgust from doing her bidding. They've passed her on to me and I'm not happy.
She's suppose to be getting exercise. All she does is sit on her ass and watch tv all day,and goes to the bathroom,and makes coffee and food a few times. Day in,day out she's in that apartment
She won't leave,we've tried to get her out
She's already on depression meds,so there's nothing else a doc can do.
She's only 68.
This isn't new behavior,she's always been this way.

Seems to me this mother is calling out for attention, why not give it to her, remember the atenttion she once gave you? I would humor her...remember she might not be around much longer, we never know how much time we got left, go see her take the grandchildren...make it a family outing. Telling her no and all the other options will only depress her more, and even you, and it will not change a thing.
